How Would It Feel To Win A $270 Million Jackpot?

A Georgia couple has won Friday's $270 million Mega Millions jackpot.

Tonya and Robert Harris have a ticket that matches all five digits, plus the all-important Mega Ball.

Their win has not been officially confirmed yet, because lottery offices are closed until Monday. The Harrises shared their win and showed the ticket to news media.

Robert told news crews that he and his wife used the birthdays of their grandchildren. Robert is an iron worker, and he and Tonya live in a mobile home.

Robert also said he would probably take the payout in one lump sum, which estimates put at roughly $164 million.

    I think these winners are truly deserving of the jackpot! Their great! And I hope that they have a wonderful time with it. Maybe someday I can share the feeling. I think its about time Washington state hits it...and it will be meeeeee! maybe. I couldn't even begin to emagine how it feels. Must be wonderful, and yet a bit scary thinking that your going to wake up and it was all just a dream. My congrats to them!

    If I ever one that much money, I really don't know what I would do besides the usualy things that come to mind, new house, new car, new wardrobe, etc.

    I can not describe how I would react to win 270 million dollars. One thing I do know, I will have a name change, address change and a lot of counseling. I am going to hit the NC lottery (for millions.
